Perspective

in Media,MLB Beyond the Sox,Red Sox

If you thought Dan Shaughnessy was going to sit this one out, with the Red Sox humbled and winless after their first three games in Texas, you don’t know the CHB very well. By his standards today’s column comes off as reasonable, but Shaughnesy leaves us a great reminder of his laziness and general lack [...]

Dan Shaughnessy Wrote A Dumb Column Today

by Sully on March 27, 2011

in Media

This morning’s Boston Globe features a Dan Shaughnessy piece that stands out in its incoherence, even by Shaughnessy’s impressive standards. A big part of the Globe’s Red Sox preview today centers on injuries: how they sacked the 2010 Red Sox chances, how teams think about preventing them, how certain players are eager to bounce back [...]

In today’s Boston Globe, Pete Abraham looks at Clay Buchholz and how he outperformed his peripherals last season. One small issue I had with the piece is that Abraham adds little context. You or I might know what he’s talking about, but my suspicion is that not many Globe readers do. The other minor quibble [...]

A Truly Regrettable Contract

by Sully on February 8, 2011

I can’t seem to nail down the transcript or audio file, but I understand that Gerry Callahan referred to J.D. Drew as Theo Epstein’s “most regrettable” move this morning on WEEI. It’s beyond preposterous, and so I thought I would highlight what I think was Epstein’s most regrettable move. Consider it a little follow-up to [...]

And Now a Word on J.D. Drew’s Hamstring

On Sunday, Nick Cafardo reported in his notes column that Red Sox right fielder J.D. Drew has been experiencing nagging hamstring issues this offseason. Here’s the excerpt. You can decide for yourself if it merits a strong reaction. J.D. Drew, RF, Red Sox — He had some lingering hamstring issues this offseason and may be [...]

A Q&A with the Globe’s Chad Finn

by Marc on December 22, 2010

in Media,Red Sox

Today we’re running a Q&A session we conducted with the Boston Globe and Boston.com’s Chad Finn, whose work can be found at Touching All the Bases. He knows his stuff, and with the flurry of Red Sox action on the free agent and trade markets as of late, we thought we would discuss how the [...]

Next Up: Carl Crawford

in AL East,Media

Oh, there were questions. Why the “bridge year” for such a wealthy team in 2010? Why can’t the Red Sox “close the deal”? Why are they buying a British football club if they can’t retain Jason Bay or pursue Matt Holliday? I mean, look at some of these tweets from Sunday afternoon when Jon Heyman [...]

Brian MacPherson is an up-and-comer on the Red Sox beat for The ProJo, and he was kind enough to take some time to talk Sox with Marc and me. ========= Sully: First, thanks a lot for agreeing to this, Brian. It’s always nice to have perspective from guys with more access to the team than [...]

A V-Mart Appreciation

by Sully on November 28, 2010

in Media,MLB Beyond the Sox,Red Sox

Marc said his piece on Victor Martinez and, mostly on Twitter, I have said mine as well. My instinct was mostly to play defense against all the reactionaries. There was a lot of knee-jerk bullshit out there, not the least of which coming from this professional sports personality named Marc Bertrand. .bbpBox7096794039189504 {background:url(http://a1.twimg.com/profile_background_images/175659446/Untitled-1_copy.gif) #131516;padding:20px;} p.bbpTweet{background:#fff;padding:10px [...]
